Finally we have a release date for Southland Tales. Did you like Donnie Darko? Did it intrigue you to see something a little off-beat and original on your movie screens? You wanna see what the young director (well not anymore after the delay of this movie) Richard Kelly did after that cult movie? Of course you do... Southland Tales, the COMEDY/MUSICAL/SCI-FI flick starring The Rock, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seann William Scott, Justin Timberlake, Mandy Moore, Kevin Smith and more (seriously I didn't make that sentence up) will hit our cinema screens on November 9th 2007. This is some two years after filming began on the movie and after months of editing and re-editing as screenings with critics and test audiences didn't go down well at all.
Southland Tales is an ensemble piece set in the futuristic landscape of Los Angeles on July 4, 2008, as it stands on the brink of social, economic and environmental disaster. Johnson will star as Boxer Santaros, an action star stricken with amnesia whose life intertwines with Krysta Now (Gellar), an adult film star developing her own reality television project, and David Clark (Scott), a Hermosa Beach police officer who holds the key to a vast conspiracy.Was Donnie Darko a fluke? Has Kelly truly gone insane with this movie? Or is it a sophomore effort that was worth waiting for? At least we now have a date when those questions will be answered. source - indie wire, coming soon
